New generation LB balers feature revisions and refinements throughout, to create machines even more productive than their predecessors.
Standard feeder LB series balers now benefit from an upgraded chain and tensioner for enhanced durability, while a new packer slip clutch incorporating an additional friction plate made from thicker material provides improved load transfer and heat dissipation for maximum reliability. There’s also a new stronger packer driveshaft, with 33% larger diameter. From front to rear, every aspect of the LB series balers was examined by Case IH engineers to analyse areas where there was scope for improvement. Every major component came under scrutiny, from the pick-up, rotor and pre-chamber through to the packer and knotters. But it wasn’t just those primary components that were revised and re-engineered. Improvements on new LB balers include innovations in headland management and density control, and even developments in simpler but still essential areas, such as tractor couplings and lighting.
